No Disk error & MountedDisks

Any drive letter that is in the volumes and not mounted results in the  
system error, Jay. As it is the OS that responds, I am guessing the call is  pretty 
low level with no fast-reacting workaround.

I concur with  Hugh.  On my Win2k with rev 2.5, "the volumes" lists all
drives, whether  they are "available" or not, like the floppy, the CDROM
(with no disk  loaded), and network mappings, even if that resource is
currently unavailable  (the computer is down/disconnected).  So then you need
a way to test  each drive.  Using (there is a file...), I don't have a
problem with any  of them using except the floppy.  It pops up the error
dialog that Hugh  mentions.

Hugh, do you get the error dialog with any other drives?   If not, then you
could just always exclude the A: drive, which for 99.9% of  Windows PCs that
would be the one and only floppy drive.
